 X’ Stance – (Gyocha Seogi)

It has two significant variations, both of which the feet cross over in some way

Variation one is used for landing distance or height jumps, such as in patterns Yul-gok and Toi-gye.

Variation two is used for stepping sideways in a defensive position, such as in pattern Po-eun.


The forward foot points outwards from the forward line, and the back foot is behind it on the ball of the foot. Both knees are bent and the back knee leans into the front knee. The weight distribution is mostly on the forward leg. In jumping, the forward leg of this stance is the leg that moves first.
